The ever-secretive outfit, The Black Opera enlists Mayer Hawthorne for their latest, “Queen of Hearts”: “While in search of his Queen of Hearts, or some would say, KUEENZ of Heart, the King was not very trusting with any of his beautiful possibilities. Once he learned how to trust himself, then and only then, was he able to trust and L O V E Without A Limit.” – The Black Opera
New listen from J. Cole as he prepares for the release of Born Sinner.
New (as far as we know) Kelis, produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek. UPDATE: It appears this track is actually called “Jerk Ribs”, not “Call On Me” as first thought. It will appear on Kelis’ upcoming album, FOOD, in September. Kelis has signed to Dave Sitek’s Federal Prism label, and he will produce the entire album.
The unquestionably perfect partnership of El-P and Killer Mike (who worked together on Killer Mike’s R.A.P. Music album, which was produced entirely by El-P) are back as an official duo, Run The Jewels. The will be releasing an album together in June on Fool’s Gold. When this tour happens, I need to be there.[Audio clip: view full post to listen]

Very clever new video for Blu‘s “Vanity”, from the Her Favorite Colo(u)r project.
Shit Robot is back with a new single featuring JENR (a.k.a. The Rapture‘s Luke Jenner). Damn near 8min of DFA Records doing what DFA Records does best. Somebody hand me a drink! Friday!
Atoms For Peace – Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich in this instance – remix Four Tet‘s “Pyramids”. Headphones (or extraordinarily complex system of speakers thrown around a big empty room) for this one. The sound bounces all over the place.
Bonobo’s new album, The North Borders, was released last week. This new video for “First Fires” is the sort where I’d be hesitant to give my own interpretation, for fear that it was nowhere near the artist’s vision and I inadvertently reveal some psychological problem I didn’t even know I had. I love those.
